Chevy Colorado GMC Canyon teaser - hood renderings

At a series of industry seminars in Traverse City, MI today, General Motors executive vice president Dan Ammann gifted us with our first glimpse of the upcoming midsize pickup range from Chevrolet and GMC.

Just two slivers of nose are all we can see of the soon-to-be announced Chevy Colorado and GMC Canyon, though the teaser image does make plain that the pair will follow the styling cues (at least up front) found on big brothers Silverado and Sierra.

GM hasn't given us much in the way of detail in its ultra-brief press release that accompanied the teaser image, which is to be expected. We're told only that the pair of trucks are designed to be "capable, versatile and fuel-efficient alternatives to full-size pickups" and that production will start sometime in 2014, at the Wentzville, MO assembly center.

You know how these things go though: a teaser leads to a leak, which leads to us knowing nearly everything before the small trucks have their sheets pulled at auto show. The Detroit Auto Show and Chicago Auto Show appear to be the leading venues for the models' debut. Stay tuned.
